HOW DO I UNWRAP A CYLINDER


Joe Jones

Scenario:  a cylinder, 6" diameter with a 1/4" wall thickness.  At the midpoint, a 4" diameter cylinder pierces through at 90 degrees.

I want to create a 2D DXF flie of that 6" cylinder UNWRAPPED, which will reveal the elongated holes needed to create a round hole through the 6" cylinder.  It will be cut with a plasma table and a rotary accessory.

Your help is appreciated!

I make training videos for the proprietary DesignEdge software that runs the PlasmaCam tables.  I am HOPING that DSM can create the needed 2D DXF files without owners being required to spend $2,000.00 on the DesignEdge "Pipe Cutting Upgrade"
